United States – Certification Testing News

Please find specific test delivery information for Pearson VUE-owned and operated Pearson Professional Centers (PPCs) and third-party test centers on the testing site where you signed up for the tests. *Please note that some third-party test centers around the world are operating at limited or changed capacity based on their own discretion outside of government mandates in affected areas. They may also institute additional precautionary measures to protect candidates and employees during this time.

Information Directly from the United States Certification Exam Testing Centers:

“Due to increasing concern for the health and safety of our candidates and our employees and in response to government guidance and difficulty procuring the critical hygienic products that keep our test centers safe, we are temporarily closing our U.S.-based Pearson VUE-owned and operated Pearson Professional Centers (PPCs) starting Tuesday, March 17.

Candidates can reschedule their exams for appointments starting May 1, 2020 and beyond if conditions allow.”
